Nepenthe

Hey, I learned another new word last week!

 

{via other-wordly}

 

 

And now it makes sense that Nepenthe Restaurant in Big Sur is named as such. If you’re ever on a drive along California’s PCH and happen by Big Sur, I’d recommend a stop here. Nepenthe is a rustic restaurant which overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is a great casual place to stop and relax. It’s lovely to sit outside with some appetizers and a glass of wine, and just drink in the view.

Per Nepenthe’s site:

Perched on the edge of the continent, high above the Pacific, watched over by the majestic Santa Lucia Mountains sits Nepenthe Restaurant. This Mecca of poets, artists, travelers and vagabonds has served guests for sixty years, opening for business on April 24, 1949.

 

Come on now, how great does that sound?

Birthday and Getting My Goat On

Oy, it’s birthday time again. Dang, that came back around fast!

I’m definitely at that age where I don’t want to organize any hoopla about getting older. Ignoring it sorta seems better for my state of mind. BUT I’m pretty excited to use birthday time as an excuse to finally check out the goat dinner at the always delicious Tar & Roses this weekend. I’m really looking forward to trying goat for the first time and all the yummalicious sides that Chef Andrew is guaranteed to whip up with my peeps who were down to their goat on with me. I suspect people around us might groak at us.

Oh, did I tell you I learned a new word? Groak.

 

.

I hope I used that correctly. I thought it was hilarious because I’m sure I groak all the time. But it’s sort of a pitiful sounding word, isn’t it? Although, I’d bet I would look pitiful as I groaked at a table of happy people gorging on a roasted goat feast… haha.

 

Anywho, I hope everyone has a great and delicious weekend, as well!

xo, kero

TED Talks: Dan Barber

I love food. I care about the environment and the sustainability of our resources. And now I have a mini-crush on Dan Barber.

If you’ve ever watched any of the Talks from TED, then you know how informative, interesting and inspiring they are. If you’re not familiar with TED, I highly recommend that you browse their site and take a watch at some of the great speakers and topics they’ve featured.

A couple of weeks ago, I watched a couple of great talks by Chef Dan Barber and I had to share these great discoveries! They’re only 19 minutes each and very much worth your time, I think. Dan is a great speaker and pretty funny, too. 🙂

 

How I Fell In Love With A Fish
This first one I’m posting deals with sustainable fish farming. It’s an great story and I don’t understand why there aren’t more fish farms like the one Dan introduces us to. It’s such an amazing place and the issue is one that is pretty important.

 

.

Foie Gras Parable
This next one introduces us to a small farm in Spain that produces humane foie gras. Especially interesting to us Californians, since it’s been banned in our state. Again, another amazing place and farmer Eduardo is an inspiration and his philosophies are admirable.
